Thank you Keith, Mike, and Tom for sharing your experiences with this aircraft!
Jerry, I will be producing a video on places to spot at DSM on my YouTube channel, Citrus Aviation. It should be outing the next month, but short of it here is there are 4 major spotting locations, Cell Phone Parking lot (this image was taken there), Parking Garage, an Elliott Aviation hanger parking lot, and a hill by runway 13, which you need permission from airport ops to use.
Thank you, Dave!
The E6 does operate a similar mission to the Looking Glass but for Navy purposes.

This is the UD.14-01, Canadair (now Bombardier) CL415. The data that appears both of the registration and of the model have been modified by the web system

Written on 2021年 01月 17日 by Luis Rguez

Good evening, these are data that have been modified by the system, just as the license plate does not have the B that the program adds by system, I am sorry for the inconvenience but personally I cannot do anything

Dwight, this might answer your question about the N and you are correct as to what it means, but there is more.

Nice shot Dwight! Thanks for sharing.

I was gonna say that looked like an updated version of Looking Glass, but saw the NAVY on the rear fuselage. Great shot.

This shot is out of this world!!! And those engines are just massive on the 777.

I was so gutted to have missed that very rare opportunity to catch Atlas Air.

Excellent! Both aircraft had empty weights of approx 10,000#'s. The Avenger took off at 18,000#'s when carrying a 2,000# bomb or torpedo. The smaller A-4 took off at a gross weight of over 24,000#'s - ready to fight. Ain't power wonderful?

It's a Steen Skybolt. Wiki can tell you all about it.

We had one of two of these CH=54 in my First Cav Division when I was in country from November 1967 to December 1968, But I never saw it is action picking up downed Helicopters.The CH-54 Tarhe, also called Skycrane or flying insect, was manufactured by Sikorsky. The nickname Skycrane derives from its heavy load cargo lifting mission. As for insect-it’s a nickname given by pilots for its unusual design. During the Vietnam War this versatile helicopter was used for various missions, including recovery, rescue, infantry transport, medical supply and even armor transport operations.

The CH-54 helicopter is equipped with a crane in the center of the fuselage that is operated by a co-pilot or an engineer from the backside of the pilots’ cabin. The crane operator has an good view of what is happening beneath. The Tarhe demonstrated the very best capabilities in combat, climbing with maximum speed of 100 km/h even being overloaded. During the Vietnam War the CH-54 Tarhe was one of the safest US Army's helicopters to fly. In comparison to the AH-1 Cobra and UH-1 Iroquois the losses of CH-54 helicopters was minimal. Also it was unique by having a tremendous lifting power. In Vietnam War the Skycrane had to cope with loads such as damaged air and ground vehicles. It also took significant role in military engineering projects such as building bridges and fortifications.

The CH-54 has an maximum external payload capacity of 12 t. Its unique shape allowed to handle all kinds of loads. Two engines are located on top of the fuselage and rear landing gear is situated wide. This allows to carry different kinds of containers. This helicopter is also compatible with a universal military cargo pod.

The CH-54 has been retired from the US military service in 1991. However due to its versatility it is still used by some government and civil operators. The CH-54 helicopter is used for civilian purposes such as construction and fire-fighting. NASA is one of the most important operators of this air vehicle.

In 1992 Erickson Air-Crane purchased the manufacturing rights for the Sikorsky S-64, a civil version of the CH-54. This helicopter is still in production.

When I got out of "A" School in '67, my first assignment was VQ-2 in Rota. Worked on EA-3's, but as an ADJ, my contact with the EC121M's was limited to ground duties. This photo brings back a whole lot of memories.

for the kiddies too young to remember:
On February 3, 1959, American rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and "The Big Bopper" J. P. Richardson were killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, together with pilot Roger Peterson.

Awesome Gman - I knew I was guessing on the dates and you are correct. I appreciate the History and wish I had chased this jet down for more pics near the gate.

TYVM...Agreed,,,Delta should have known better, if it isn't broken, don't fix it...

Written on 2021年 01月 17日 by Tom Vance

TYVM...the best part is, and just by a slim chance, very slim chance, a co-worker in my office now 2021 used to work for NWA at PHX for 6 years and of course I never new it until about 1 yr ago he walked by my desk and saw a very similar photo to this on my computer background him stating "hey I used to work there..."....he was a gate Agent and boarded pax at these gates. So the many years I was here visiting relatives and this photo angle he was probably inside the terminal..I gave him a few select shots...

Written on 2021年 01月 17日 by Tom Vance

thank you all. KPHX is an awesome 'port to film at especially from atop those 2 terminal garages..

Written on 2021年 01月 17日 by Tom Vance

Agreed Gman____they should have stayed true and used the classic Delta scheme for years on end....they wasted a lot of money on this c/s.

Grounded for sure LOL, but rolling around PAE there is plenty of ground to cover and I'd never pass up a new jet photo!

Finally a photo from Des Moines and a good one. I'm in Altoona and I live within a mile of the extended approach path of 23. Would appreciate knowing where you spot from. The old turnoff at McKinley where the F16's used to park has been closed since 9-11.

Per Cirium, this aircraft reportedly suffered an engine failure shortly after take-off from Republic Airport, Farmingdale, Long Island, New York on Jan. 10, 2021. The pilot attempted to return to the airport but the aircraft's second engine then also reportedly lost power and he subsequently attempted a forced landing on a road in Old Bethpage, about 4km north northwest of the airport. The aircraft collided with the fence of the Old Bethpage Solid Waste Disposal Complex and was substantially damaged.
